Free Knitting Pattern for Plymouth Encore!

This little candy-cane striped slouchy hat and cowl pattern is new from Plymouth Yarns. It's a FREE knitting pattern featuring Plymouth Encore Worsted Weight Yarn (machine washable, woo hoo!). It's such an easy knit design, it got me thinking of all the variations you could do to personalize this project.

Ways to Personalize Cowl and Slouchy Hat Free Pattern
  1. Knit it in all one color
  2. Knit it in your high school/college or favorite sports team colors
  3. Use one color for the background then alternate a few other colors for the contrasting rows
  4. Knit it in using Encore Colorspun for a color changing effect
  5. Knit the background in a solid and the stripes in a coordinating shade of Encore Colorspun

Have fun with it and please feel free to send us photos of your completed project! Happy knitting!

Pardon our dust...

Busy, busy, busy! We've been on the move this month!

July has been pretty chaotic here at NobleKnits. Not only did I move to a new home with my family, but we just moved NobleKnits to a new locale! Our new space, located in Exton, PA, is nearly 4000 square feet, plenty of room to stock all the new yarns we have arriving for Fall.

Here is just a small glimpse of the move!

Customer service area and shelving units in the process of being put together.

Yarn, yarn, and more yarn!

Ahh, Manos del Uruguay yarns hanging up for all to enjoy!

Preview Fiesta Flower of the Month Yarns!

TNNA Show Fiesta Yarn Preview!
We interviewed Fiesta Yarns' owner, Jeannie Duncan at TNNA to preview the new arrivals in the Flower of the Month Yarn Collection. Click the link above to watch the video or read the interview below.

NobleKnits: Hi this is Nancy Queen, we're here at the Fiesta Hand Dyed Yarn booth with owner, Jeannie Duncan. She's here to show us the new Flower of the Month Yarns.

Duncan: Hi, Nancy! How are you? Hi, Noble Knitters!

NobleKnits: Hi, Jeannie! Show us what you've got!

Duncan: Well we are excited to present the next 6 months of the Flower of the Month Program. So, starting in July, you will be able to order from Nancy (NobleKnits), Calla Lily. Beautiful pinks and orange and a little light blue - Calla Lilies come in actually 70 different colors, or so from around the world. August is Gladiolus, 250 species originating in Africa. And September, one of our favorite colors, Morning Glory.

NobleKnits: Oh, that's beautiful!

Duncan: And, I did not know Morning Glories bloom in the morning and die in the afternoon. And I kept watering them and didn't know what I was doing wrong. See, I don't know much about flowers!

NobleKnits: But you do know a lot about yarn!

Duncan: I do know a lot about yarn!

NobleKnits: Thank you so much, Jeannie.

Duncan: You're very welcome. Thanks, Nancy! Thanks, NobleKnitters!
